about

Ēirikura is a musical multi-faceted venture, inspired by the coming of spring, in Prussian and Irish ancient lands. The forces of nature are contemplated, from the germination of existence, through the joys of innocent youth and fresh love that is everlasting, to the inevitable facing of decay and cessation, but with the promise of rebirth and resurrection through the never-ending cycle of nature.

Ēirikura brings the listener on an entrancing journey, from start to finish. Using a phantasmagoria of radiant images of natural growth and decline, Ēirikura gently guides the listener to their spiritual gate, eventually to glide in a dreamlike state to higher realms. English, Prussian and Gaelige (Irish) are the languages interwoven, as Ēirikura creates a sense of mysterious timelessness, The varied enchanting soundscape of Ēirikura, is created using familiar instruments: guitars, strings (violin, viola, cello), grand piano, flute, oboe, trumpet, drums, to more unconventional ones, such as bandura, zither, bowed psaltery, musical saw and various percussions. The eclectic sound created ranges in genre from neo-folk and neo-classical to ethereal, ambient and experimental. Complementing the instrumentals are many united voices of girls’ choir, solo singing and poetic recitals, blended together on ‘Reflection of a Higher Realm’ by Eirikura, to make it a unique auditory pleasure.
